of help because of her being in george w. bush's cabinet. it wouldn't be as horrific as when mccain won palin. i think mccain lost that election because palin was on the ticket. and gary writes condoleezza rice would be a huge boost for the romney ticket. the woman smart, experienced and likable on top of the obvious democratic advantages. that being said, she knows better than to accept the job. if you want to read more on this subject, go to, or to our post on "the situation room's" face book page. >> jack, thank you. everybody remembers former democratic congressman anthony weiner. he resigned in disgrace because of a sex scandal. he may be thinking seriously of trying for a political comeback. >> today i'm announcing my resignation from congress. >> that is the last public image of anthony weiner as a congressman as he stepped down in disgrace. now he's reportedly considering a run for mayor in new york. before his doufl he was considered shoe in for the position. >> obviously someone got access to my account. that's bad. they sent a picture that makes fun of th
those. try this. go back in time, what do you get in 2004? george w. bush won both of those states. go back to the year 2000 they were split. al gore winning in iowa, george bush winning in colorado. classic swing states. why are the candidates spending so much time there? one of the reasons they are not only toss up states, they are about as close as you can come. in the latest colorado poll about two months old we'd like to see more recent data. but look at that. a lot of money going into these states. look a this right now, yes, governor romney has been raising more money as of late, but tv ads spending just in the last month in colorado almost $500,000 advantage. $2.1 million for the president, $1.6 million spent just by the campaigns in the state of colorado both campaigns now beginning to invest in resources. 26 offices, that's a lot for the democrats and obama. four statewide for the romney campaign. that's the state of colorado. move these out of the way. come back to the state of iowa, wolf. when you bring up that state, again, you see something quite similar. the latest poll
in the state. go back to '04, john kerry carried it barely when george w. bush was carrying it in 2000. one other key place to watch look at '08, there are many swing counties but look at this blue. cincinnati. president obama carried hamilton county. for republicans to win statewide in a close election, watch that county down there. i'll give you a highlight for it. for republicans to win in a close statewide election, they need cincinnati. that's president bush in '04. that's president bush in 2000. even in '96 bob dole won down there. you're going to see a lot of the romney campaign in the cincinnati area. they know how important it is. >> when you point out in the beginning as you accurately do, no republican has won the white house in modern times without carrying ohio. let me ask you this question, i guess it's three retically possible, but is it likely that romney could win the race for the white house even without ohio? >> that is what i'll call the big yeah, but, question in american politics. can he? yes, can he realistically? most likely no. let me show you why. map as we see it

helped create the excitement three or so years ago. some are suggesting that george w. bush would go down as a terrible president. i was one of those. i don't understand why the democrats aren't excited or even frantic. the last time i looked the republican congress has shut down the country in the last three and a half years. i think election day will answer this question. lou writes i was excited about electing obama because he ran on the platform of providing universal health care. what we ended up with was more money and power going to the insurance giants with the mandate. he caved on the biggest issue of our time. it's hard to get excited about that. and any in atlanta writes, hey, democrat here, i'm more excited to vote this year than i was in 2008. if you want to read more on this, go to the blog, or through our post on the "the situation room" facebook page. wolf. >>> jack, thank you. >>> and you're in "the situation room." happening now there are new concerns that syria's chemical weapons stockpiles could fall into the wrong hands. just ahead we're getting n
